Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. Click here to learn more about Operation Christmas Child.
Oksana received a shoe box gift while living in a Russian orphanage. The following year, Oksana was adopted by an American family, which includes three adopted siblings. The first time that her church packed shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, Oksana told her pastor she was once a recipient. That launched the beginning of her speaking engagements in churches, groups, and schools. As the number of boxes continues to increase, Oksana sees her story making a difference in the hearts of her community and in the children receiving the shoe boxes. Oksana lives in Nashville, TN where she is studying to get her MBA at Lipscomb University. Don't miss this special opportunity to hear Oksana share her incredible story.
